The Second Coming

Actually, this one's pretty straight forward. If you click the info about The Second Coming, it pretty much repeats what the animation says, except it keeps saying, "It's in the Bible.", like you're a moron. Each. Bloody. Paragraph.

Has anyone ever played the online game where you defend your castle from attackers by picking up the attackers and dropping them?

I was trying to do that to the people in that animation.

IIRC, it wasn't the shoe bomber's loud prayers that sparked the takedown by the other passengers; it was that he was trying to light his shoe on fire. Very, very different. Canuckistan

No no no no. You forgot the italics, like on the website: It's in the Bible.

Even if I turned something like this into my most lenient teacher he'd fail me. That's how bad it is. I turned in a nonsense whipped up in 2 minutes symbol animation for god's sake and still got an A-.

Through the miracle that is modern television.

Of course, TV isn't reaching the entire world yet. Jesus ain't coming back till the pygmies and the starving Biafran children get pay per view!

Funny.

Makes me think of this episode of "Six feet Under" where all these helium-inflated sex dolls accidentally fly off a truck and an old lady believes it's the Rapture... she rushes over the street screaming "Jesus take me !" and is run over by a car.

Its amusing how they have to take different sentences from different parts of the Bible and then rearrange them completely out of order to make a coherent message.

The passage in Acts merely says that Jesus was "taken up." I have always wondered if he really did literally fly away UP into the sky as so many literalists say he did.

Also, the passages in Matthew 24 about rumors of wars, etc. were fulfilled in 70 C.E. when the Romans sacked Jerusalem and destroyed the temple during the Jewish Wars. However premillennialists insist that this passage is still unfulfilled.

Thanks for bring that up, Barbara. I've often wondered about that myself: why, when there has been war almost consistently in the past two millenia, would the Bible specifically refer to this era. Same with diseases and the other precursors to Jesus' imminent return.

Because when those wars/diseases/earthquakes/etc happened, God didn't show up! So those were obviously false prophets talking, saying it was foretold and God was coming! When it happens next week, boy, won't you feel stupid for not seeing the obvious!!!

And they've all been dead for thousands of years! They didn't have the technology to know when God was gonna come back and kick the world's ass! But we do! It's all so obvious people!!!

Jesus reappears and all the cities turn into graveyards.

Yay?
